The magnitude of vector A → is 35.0 units and points in the direction 325° counterclockwise from the positive x-axis. Calculate the x- and y-components of this vector.

To determine
The x and y components of vector (A) .

Explanation

Given Info: The magnitude of vector (A) is 35units directed at 325° counterclockwise.

Explanation:

The vector representation is depicted below,

Formula to calculate the x component of the vector is,

Ax=Acosθ

• Ax is the x-component of resultant vector
• A is the resultant displacement
• θ is angle

Substitute 35units for A , 35° for θ to find Ax .

Ax=(+35units)(cos(35°))=28.7units

Thus, the x component of the vector (Ax) is 28.7units .

The y component of the vector (Ay)
